The choir consists of up to sixteen boy choristers, the same number of girl choristers, six regular lay clerks and additional choral scholars and part time lay clerks. The choristers are recruited from local day schools, and each set of choristers attends the Cathedral on alternate Sundays and on two weeknights in rotation. The Cathedral Youth Choir of young people aged 13-21 sing once a week during term time. The Cathedral Voluntary Choir sing occasional services in the absence of the Cathedral Choir and the Youth Choir.

The Cathedral, founded in 1122, has a number of fine features: the East window of 14th century stained glass, a 16th century carved Flemish altar piece in St Wilfred's Chapel and medieval paintings in the North & South aisles depicting the lives of saints and apostles. The Choir has a 14th century barrel-vaulted painted ceiling and early 15th century Choir stalls and miserichords.
